The proposed amendments in Release No. 33-10425 would modernize and simplify certain disclosure requirements in Regulation S-K, while continuing to provide all material information to investors. The amendments are also intended to improve the readability and navigability of disclosure documents and discourage repetition and disclosure of immaterial information. We anticipate that the amendments would, in the aggregate, reduce the burdens and costs to registrants associated with compliance with the federal securities disclosure regime. These estimated burden and cost reductions are expected to result primarily from proposed amendments to the Commission’s disclosure requirements that would allow registrants, in some circumstances, to eliminate the earliest year of the MD&A discussion; permit registrants, in certain circumstances, to omit, without a confidential treatment request, schedules and attachments that are not material and confidential information in material contracts exhibits that is both (i) not material and (ii) competitively harmful if publicly disclosed; and simplify and modernize executive officer, Section 16(a) compliance and corporate governance disclosure requirements. For purposes of the PRA, we estimate that the proposed amendments to Form F-4 would result in a net decrease of 70 burden hours and a net decrease in the cost burden of $84,400 for the services of outside professionals.
